Yes, I did find out tonight that the USDF limits their competitors to 3 tests for 4th level and below. But, I'm thinking the schooling shows that I've been dragging him out to won't care - more money in their pockets.
He's only doing training level... as hard as it gets is a stretchy circle. I figure if he can ride a test, gallop/jump around xc for 5 minutes then jump a stadium course, he can do 4 4-minute dressage tests with at least 1/2 hour breaks in between each one ;)
Also, when we ride 2 tests, it feels like he's just getting in his groove during our second test. The second test is always better since he had a chance to get used to the ring/judges stand/etc during the first test :)
